Muharram and Aashuraa

Virtues of the month of Muharram

The Month of Allaah Al-Muharram & the Day of Aashuura’

Lessons from the Hijra

The IAR congratulates the community on the blessed occasion of the month of Muharram and the new Hijri year. It is encouraged to fast a great deal during the month of Muharram. It is the Sunnah of our Prophet (saw) to fast the day of ‘Aashuraa’, falling on Tuesday, October 11, along with the day before or the day after. The Prophet (saw) says in a hadith on the reward for this fast, “It wipes away the sins of the previous year”, we ask that Allah accept from us all.
